  2. The IDEAL Cover Letter and Resume

  5. Lie on notes? Don't follow care plan.
    In other words, nurses are not expected to provide "nursing" care, they are expected to babysit the client and a sibling? Sounds like insurance fraud to me. You are correct to question this....

  7. What is your opinion of nursing and positive illusions?
    Hmmm. Experienced nurses are very good at cutting through a lot of extraneous material and getting down to the facts. "Unrealistic positive views," "narcissists" are not phrases used to win friends...

    Just a wild guess here, but I think maybe your failure had to do with more than the "power of a big shot clinical instructor." I understand you may not be happy but flinging general insults at all...

  14. oh, you were just laying down?
